This sounds like a really cool build. 8)

Just curious though... how will you know of you get the five-piece neck or not?

if you take out the neck pickup, you could probably pick away any finish under there to confirm. :mrgreen:

He still makes delicious popcorn, for a dead guy.

That, or like my previous solid color/multi-piece neck build, I should be able to hold it in just the right light and see the seams in the finish. I'm not worried about them not doing it. They can sometimes be a little inattentive and clumsy and get a few of the finer details wrong, but I can't ever recall them making mistakes in the structural config or using the wrong woods.

He faked his own death. He couldn't handle to pressure of being a popcorn magnate, what with all the paparazzi, beautiful women throwing themselves at him, and the constant lawsuits and death threats from the chip companies. He's now named Gerald Forscythe and lives in Djibouti.

Hey, if they screw up or you don't like it it's still returnable, right? I didn't see anything in your specs that typically makes one non-returnable. One thing you're missing is a Tung oiled neck! :stir:

That explains the economic conditions in Bolivia. He must have a plantation there. It all makes sense.

Yes, it's returnable, that was an absolute non-negotiable requirement for this build given my previous 3 build experiences from Kiesel. As I mentioned in another thread, if I get so much as a whiff of something awry (* ahem, improperly dried wood *) I'll fire it back to Kiesel like a scud missile. Again, I'm very cautiously optimistic but also skeptical. We'll see how it goes down in a few months.

I think I'm the only person alive that doesn't care one way or the other about tung oiled necks. 8)

My next build will likely be BRG...so classy.

They are being remade by another company these days. A modern E-type. Can't complain about that.

Cool, it's about time someone was concentrating on another classic repro besides the Cobra. Love it.

I briefly considered buying an F-Type when they came out, in BRG of course (which disappointingly was a metallic flake finish and not real BRG). Then I remembered...I like the electrical systems on my cars to actually work, and I'd be able to buy one in two years with 8k miles for half the price of new, so I passed. Good thing too, because then the coupe came out. If I ever pull the trigger on one, a coupe it must be.

Caterham has been building modernized repros of the old Lotus 7 for a long, long time.

Of course, yeah, the Cobra is a popular one, though Factory Five (probably the biggest one behind the repro cobra) makes a '32 Ford style car and truck, as well as a Cobra daytona coupe, and a couple original models (reminiscent of a GT40 and....a Gemballa Porsche style maybe).

Cars and guitars...they go together.

Indeed.
